The Sports Club’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) took place in the clubhouse on Saturday 23rd April 2022.

The Agenda and papers for the AGM were issued to Sports Secretaries to be shared with their Adult Members.

The Management Committee asks members to liaise with their Sports Secretary to obtain copies of the AGM materials, including the 2021 Accounts and revisions to the Constitution which have been proposed and reflect feedback from members and our Sports post the EGM.
